In their defense, the Monkees themselves supposedly appreciated him for the genius he was.

they loved having him on their tour because they got to see him every night as described by Monkees producer/songwriter Tommy Boyce:

It was a personal trip.  They wanted to watch Jimi Hendrix every night.  They didn't care of he fit.

After Hendrix bombed his second show in Miami singer/songwriter Vince Martin asked Peter Tork:
Quote
"Peter why are you subjecting Jimi to this?"  he said, "I love him.  He's got to work."

We got high together.  We had this DC6, with this lounge in the back.  There were some reporters on the plane, so we would leave the reporters in the front and go into the back and smoke it up.

if you've ever seen the Monkees movie Head, you know they knew exactly what they were and how to make fun of it. Zappa makes a memorable appearance in it, among others peoples...

nice, I'd like to see it.

edit - as difficult a vote, I went w/ Hendrix.

This.  One of my prized pieces of vinyl that I inherited from my parents is my copy of Head on vinyl.  I was more pumped about finding that then I was about the copy of Herbie Hancock's "Thrust" and Pet Sounds mono original pressing.

Shit is deep.

I just appreciate you considering it.
